Sleep research revealed the presence of sleep in a multitude of species; because it is such a widespread activity it leads to believe that sleep is a necessary process. Mammalian sleep research provided electrophysiological and behavioral sleep criteria; perhaps these criteria are sufficient to identify sleep in non-mammals as well. Sleep research has mainly focused on mammalian sleep and kept sleep research in other species in the background. Sleep studies have been done on reptiles and fish, but to far less extent than mammals. Because fish are ancient species, if sleep were found in them, it could perhaps explain the continuous presence of sleep within the animal kingdom.
